Bronx native, Ol’ Smith teams up with Ron Suno to drop his new single “Robert Horry” along with an accompanying music video. The track mixes the vocals of Ol’Smith with the sonics of drill before Ron Suno’s verse solidifies the drill feel with lyrics such as, “I like to shop when I goto the mall… he try to front then I’m making that call.” With the release of “Robert Horry,” Ol’ Smith has now released three singles this year, with the other two going by the names of “Trufflez” and “Hollywood.” However, I’d argue that “Robert Horry” is his best release of the year thus far because it shows Ol’ Smith’s versatility in navigating a drill beat as a melodic act.
In the music video, we see both Ol’ Smith and Ron Suno hanging out of moving cars and having a good time dancing with the crowd of people behind them. “Robert Horry” was released by Ol’ Smith’s label Burnsev Records, named after Burnside and 167th Street, where he grew up. With noticeable blue hair that represents serenity and dreams of transcending the streets of New York City to become an international artist, Ol’ Smith has set his focus on becoming the best version of himself artistically. “Robert Horry” may just be the first step in Ol’ Smith’s quest to land on the radars of millions of music listeners.
